  Hi All,
I will be getting a Hymenocallis maximillini bulb in a
few days. I have looked through the archives and
searched the web to learn what this plant likes. Here
is what I have concluded. Needs rich well drained
soil. Keep soil moist.  It needs a dry dormant period
in the winter. The soil mix I will be using is compost
(fir bark) sand, pumice,perlite and pea gravel. Does
this soil mix sound good. Also, I wanted to put this
in a 1 gallon black plastic pot. Does this bulb like
to be crowded? Is 1 inch deep OK for this? I live in
San Jose California. I know this variety comes from
Mexico and gets more humidity there than we get here
on the west coast. Any suggestions to my growing notes
would be appreciated.
thanks again
